The unexpected is possible!
Russia definitely chose victory to be their style.
As they played Netherlands they defeated them 3:1 in overtime. Footie sweetie Roman Pavlyuchenko leaded in the 56th minute, but Dutch captain Ruud va Nistelrooy equalized in the 87th minute and sent the game into extra time.
In the extra time Russians scored twice. It was Dima Torbinski and Andrei Arshavin who took Russia to the semi-finals. Ultimately thanks to Arshavin’s high-flying performance.
The underdog team has beaten a group winner. Just like Portugal and Croatia, Netherlands – the group winner lost to Russia. Moreover, Guus Hiddink is a former Dutch national coach and he admitted he knew all the techniques and that helped Russia win the game.
Right after the game Russian team received a phone call from their president Dmitryi Medvedev, who joked saying he would love to give Hiddink a Russian citizenship.

The next opponent for Russia is Spain. This is Russia’s chance to take revenge as they lost to Spain in the previous game 4:1
It is no secret Russian team wished to play Italy instead of Spain. Italians are the 2006 Worldcup Champions, and are surprisingly weak this year. Whereas, Spain, hasn’t lost a single game since the start of Euro 2008! Last night Spain beat Italy 0:0, making 4:2 during the overtime so the result can be either way. The real challenge for Russia is next Thursday.
